Annual meeting of Society of Toxicology (SOT)

EuroMix awarded with “Top ten mixtures abstracts” at SOT meeting

The human biomonitoring study in EuroMix was presented as an abstract and a poster at the 57th annual meeting of Society of Toxicology (SOT) in San Antonio Texas last week. The abstract was awarded as “Top 10 mixtures abstract” in the Mixtures Speciality Section.

The preliminary results presented as a poster on SOT, illustrates that the reported 24h use of personal care products (PCPs) by 144 adult volunteers in Norway were correlated with urinary levels of several phenolic compounds in 24h urine samples. Pairwise correlations were found between the use of all PCPs, body lotion, anti-wrinkle cream and hand cream and urinary levels of oxybenzone (OXBE). Furthermore there was a pairwise correlation between the use of foundation and urinary levels of bisphenol F (BPF), the use of lip-gloss and urinary ethyl paraben (ETPA) and the use of hand cream and urinary propyl paraben (PRPA).

Here is the poster.

Hubert Dirven and Trine Husøy attended the SOT conference and experienced a lot of interest in the EuroMix project. Monica Andreassen prepared the abstract and the poster.
